Dr. Katya Rhodes looking for survey pre-testers

Dr. Katya Rhodes is launching a national home heating survey to inform climate policy-making. Dr. Rhodes is inviting anyone speaking English or French to pre-test the survey via a live Zoom session or online at the survey link below. The survey will be completed by owners of detached homes over the age of 19 in Canada, but pre-testing is open to non-homeowners and owners of non-detached homes. We would like your help with understanding:

  • how long it takes you to complete the survey and each survey section;
  • any issues with clarity;
  • your experience completing the survey questions and the survey overall; and
  • if we made any errors or left out important content.

If you are interested in participating in a Zoom session, it will take approximately one hour and will involve completing the survey while on a Zoom call and then providing feedback. Please email meghancorbett@uvic.ca to indicate which of the following pre-testing sessions you would like to attend. Further instructions and the Zoom link will then be provided.

  • Pre-testing session #1: March 1, 12-1pm PST, or
  • Pre-testing session #2: March 2, 5-6pm PST.

If you prefer to do the pre-testing online on your own, please access the survey here: https://leger.decipherinc.com/survey/selfserve/542/lw30826_001a?list=0&test=1 and record your feedback in this Google Doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Bj4V-vmZPsz9AfBPZF7aPfWOKWwRYlPiC7G1N8RQ8QU/edit?ts=603704df by March 7, 2021.
